arctic priorities national backbone
Arctic Priorities: National Backbone
  • 4 C-MAN stations along Arctic coast
  • Stream flow gauges at key sites
  • Beaufort tide gauges (also T & S)
  • Better bathymetry & nearshore topography measurements
  • Moored buoys along Arctic coast
  • Network of ice-tethered buoys
  • Continuity of RADARSAT or similar sea ice monitoring
  • Validation/ground-truthing for Arctic conditions of natl space-based sensors
arctic priorities regional
Arctic Priorities: Regional
  • Improved forecasting of sea ice & fog
  • Cabled observatories at Barrow Canyon, Prudhoe & Mackenzie Canyon
  • Sea gliders & AUVs for autonomous data gathering
  • Sensors to measure sea ice thickness
  • Aerosondes for remote observation of near-shore ice & leads & biological surveys
  • Offshore moorings w/ice profiling sonars
  • Radar coverage for measured ice edge & surface currents & for ice motion & mass balance measurements
  • Ship of opportunity program
  • Wind & wave measurements to mitigate coastal erosion & improve navigation safety
  • Acoustic whale listening devices
aoos vision bering sea aleutians
AOOS VISION: Bering Sea/Aleutians
  • Users

- commercial fishing

- subsistence

- communities

- climate change research

- search & rescue

- resource managers

  • Information products

- ocean circulation models

- sea ice & vessel icing forecasts

- coastal erosion predictions

- fisheries/ecosystem productivity

bering sea aleutian priorities national backbone
Bering Sea/Aleutian Priorities:National Backbone
  • Increase number of buoys & make real-time. Monitor more variables.
  • 5 C-MAN stations along Bering coastline between Bristol Bay & Bering Strait
  • Add tide & river gauges
  • Several long-range HF radar surface current mappers at pulse pts in circulations & major fishing grounds
  • Expand fisheries surveys, increase oceanic parameters measured
bering sea aleutians priorities regional
Bering Sea/Aleutians Priorities:Regional
  • N-S array of 5 moorings along 70m isobath
  • Moorings across Bering Strait
  • Set of moorings across AK Stream s of Aleutians including shelf break buoys to measure entire water column. 2-3 moorings in Unimak pass, Amukta/Samalga Pass & Amchitka Pass
  • Expand coverage of bottom trawl surveys and BASIS project surveys
  • Record in real-time key indicator species such as whales
  • Ship of opportunity program to add addtl observing points
  • Cable-linked observatories on Pribilofs & Little Diomede Island
